The Sims Freeplay- Road to Fame Quest


This  quest unlocks at level 20 to create a Teen Idol called Road to Fame. For this quest you need a teen, but you can only have one teen sim who is the teen idol! This is the hobby for your teen sim which is great because now they actually have something to do!
You have 7 days to complete this quest if you want the premium instruments, you can still complete once the time is up.

The list of quests after you have a teen are:

  • Buy a stack of magazines- these can be found in the living room section buy mode
  • Make a teen read Teen Celebrity magazine- 3hrs (click on the stack of magazines and choose the teen celebrity option-only a teen can read this!)
  • Make a teen watch funny cat videos- 1hr (on the computer)
  • Send a Teenager to the park
  • Create a Plan to become famous- 6hrs (using the blackboard in the park on the pier)
  • Buy a keyboard (from buy mode in the teen section)
  • Write music (using the keyboard to find notes- cheapest keyboard takes an hour)
  • Write 3 pieces of music ( you have to find a new note to be counted as a piece of music)
  • Write 6 pieces of music
  • Write 9 pieces of music
  • Write 12 pieces of music
  • Write 15 pieces of music

It is a lot like the other hobbies, you unlock different instruments with each line of notes you find, the higher star level the instruments have the faster your sim will write music and find rare notes.

Once you’ve found all the keyboard notes you will unlock the bass guitar (cheapest takes 2 hours to make music) then when you have found all the bass guitar notes you unlock the drum kit and so on..

If you have unlocked the next instrument but can’t find it please contact EA to see if they can fix it!

You get the sim sign when you complete this quest!

You will find the free instruments in the teen section-there is one of each instrument that you unlocked during the quest and they are all 3 star items!

You will find the sim town sign near the beach house by the estate agents- you need to upgrade it to get the chance to earn a bonus 200 in revenue. When you upgrade it to level 3 you unlock the teen idol mansion- the first one is free! To upgrade the sim sign you need to collect the pieces, to find these pieces you can redo the collection and when you finish a line you get a piece or you can find them randomly when you do an action!


The next quest ages teens to adults, you can find that post here:

Thanks for reading!

Please note this quest was correct at the time of writing, it may change.

  1. I don’t understand because Yesterday I just started the road to fame quest. I haven’t completed it (last quest read teen magazine) but today when I open my game. The quest won’t appear and the sims hill said that I completed it. Please help me.((((;゚Д゚)))))))

  2. So I’ve already finished the quest and I want to finish the grid again to get the cameo and the other reward required to level up the sim town sign but my teen won’t play the drums or guitar! I’ve already gotten all the notes for the mic, bass, and keyboard but he refuses to play those two! Do you now why?

    • I haven’t completed my sim sign yet- it takes forever! A way you could speed it up is by completing the teen music collection again, when you complete some of the rows of notes you can get a piece you need!

  3. Hi. Great blog. I have been trying forever to complete this quest and my teen just won’t make more songs. I have the “expensive bass, keyboard and drums” he plays constantly. What’s wrong? The quest is still there so I think I still have to complete it but if I EVER do will I still be able to get the sign and mansion too? Any help would be awesome. Thanks again

    • I’m having the same problem trying to complete all the notes. And I also have the “most expensive” insturments you can purchase. I have been trying to get them all since this started months ago and it is really starting to aggravate me to tell you the truth. I just need 2 more notes to complete and have been trying for over a month now just to get those 2.. I’m irritated over this!

  4. my sims practice playing the guitar but it doesn’t become a hobby now i can’t complete the quest to practice playing in another town how can i make it become one of my sims hobby

  5. Hi all. Two problems. Number 1, on the road to fame quest. I have all the notes but 1 singing note and every time I try to use the mic it doesn’t give me the last new note. What’s up???

    Second, it says I need to read celebrity magazine at neighbors but I look in all the houses and no magazine. What to do?? I don’t have enough LP to pass over it.

    • Sometimes it takes a while to get a note, just be patient and keep trying you will get it eventually
      If your neighbour doesn’t have one then you can’t do this goal, you could find another neighbour who has it

  6. I’m on the road to fame quest. I have completed all the songs up to the vocal. My teen is level six, all I need is the microphone to finish getting the last three songs. But I can’t find it anywhere! It’s unlock but it’s not in the teen section or promotions r us like the rest of the instruments are. Someone help. Pleaseeee

  7. I wrote like 10 songs on the piano and like 10 songs on the guitar but I still can’t get past the part that says write 6 pieces of music……what should I do :0

  9. I finished this quest just today but I can’t seem to find the teen idol house or whatever it’s called. There’s nothing in there except the 2 story unfurnished house & the 3 story. No teen idol house. Why?

  10. Ive been singing on a level 2 mic for 2days now i have one day left to complete the teen idol challenge…i notice in the hobby part she not leveling up im half way two level five (hobbies) and i have one song left to unlock but nothings happening im just stuck! Any suggestions???

  11. I’ve been tryin to complete the road to fame and I cannot find the microphone it doesn’t show up in the hobby shop or teen section I’m stuck I’m 90% done but can’t to anything at all getting crazy frustrated with it I keep checknf to see from time to time if it’s there and it never is. Can’t completely the other task to move one… At a loss what should I do?

    • Go to the menu on the right hand side, go to the hobbies tab and go down to the teen idol sim, click on the blue circle image and the collection will appear, you can see what you need from there

  12. My teen quest is says I have 3 more notes to find..ive completed all and now almost done with the the other sets ..hope that made also on level 6 on teen music hobby…but its stays at “3 more notes left” and ive gotten 9 notes after that…what happened?

      • Ive completed the whole set…then it said if I wanted to start a new set…and ive got one left for vocals then im done again for the second time..but yet it still says 3 notes left since the first set (guitar, drums, keyboard, mic)

      • I need one left (back up vocal) for the photo shoot. ..and the im done with all again. ..and it stays on 3 notes left..

  13. Help needed,my sims are full but some of them are walking like zombies.I have done everything but nothing helps. Please help.

  14. I am so frustrated. I have been on the then idol quest for months! I want to skip it all together! I’m not finding anymore anything! What can I do? This is the only rant and rave I have I want to quit!!! Help

    • What are you trying to get? Have to unlocked all the instruments yet?
      I can’t really tell you how to do it because it’s random, you will get them eventually you just have to keep at it, it’s a bit strange that you have been on it so long though, maybe it’s a glitch, try contacting EA to see if they know what’s up

  15. I just started the Road to fame quest yesterday. I know that once I complete the quest and build the sign and upgrade it you unlock the teen idol mansion.
    The first time the quest first came out I was already upgrading to level two and deleted the game…anyways point is… even though this late into the quest do I still get the FREE teen idol mansion or I just get to unlock it?(Btw id be very upset to find out I unlock everything just to wait till I have 80 lps that will take me forever to collect) :(( I need an answer pweeease

    • You should still get the free mansion, if you unlock the sign then that’s how you get the free mansion, I’m not sure what would be the point of the sign if you didn’t get the mansion free

  17. Hi, whats the time limit for this quest? And if you don’t complete it within the time limit, will you still get the sim town sign? I understand that you will not get the prize of free instruments but what about the sign?


  19. Elloh again :D I haven’t unlocked the mansion yet but for when I do I always thought it was free but I read somewhere it costs 80LP :0 Also I have enough LP 2 get 2 star instruments is this worth it or will I still be just as unlikely to get the music I wAnt?
    Thnx!! :D

    • Well the first one should be free then they cost LPs but they may have changed this recently :/
      2 star instruments make music faster so you could complete the collections quicker but it won’t guarantee you get the pieces you want :)

      • I’ll soon find out if the mansion is still free as I am getting closer to unlocking it! I don’t think I will buy 2 star instruments as I am saving all my LPs for your one story house competition!!! :) thanks again!!! :) :D Also…! I have 21(I think) Sims and it says my SIM limit is reached! Is this just a glitch or am I only allowed 21 Sims! I just spend 3 LP on a new baby so I am hoping I am still allowed to add it! And how many Sims r u allowed per household? I always thought it was 4 (2 parents and 2 children) but I read somewhere that if you have 2 story house you can have more than 2 kids.. is this true? :)
        Thanks again! :D

      • Apparently it isn’t free anymore which is annoying :/
        It wouldnt have let you buy the baby if you had reached the limit so the limit was reached when you brought the baby, the limit increases as you level up :)
        You can only have 4 sims living in one house, it doesn’t matter how many storys it is

      • That is annoying.. and naughty! Oh well! I think we should b allowed more than 4 ppl! The thing that confused me is that my friends Sims have 3 kids… she showed me! Glitch?
        Thnx again 4 for ur awesome help!!! :) :) :)

      • Well my sims have 3 kids but that is because one became an adult and moved out :P im not sure how your friend has managed it, it might be a glitch- have you asked her?
        No problem :D

      • Yeah I saw her 2day she said she had one boy teen and 1 girl toddler and she just added another baby! Must be a glitch! Also, roughly, how many collections does it take to upgrade the sign 2 lvl 3?

      • Yeah must be!
        Oh I have no idea sorry :P It really does depend on how many you find doing random actions as well so it would be difficult to say, and I have no idea how many of each piece are needed to upgrade it but you do get one of each when you complete each collection so you could roughly guess :)

      • Okay. Ima just keep going ;) Also, is there defo no way of changing Sims. (I mean is there anyway of having another teen idol)

  20. You know what? The PRIZE isn’t free anymore. This is ridiculous. We still have to buy them and I’m not going to. What’s the point of saying its a PRIZE when I have to pay for it?

  21. May I have one of my teen sims (the one who wants to become a teen idol) read the magazine and have the other watch the funny cat video on computer? Does that cause trouble when deciding which teen to become a teen idol?

  22. I see some other people have glitches too. I finished all the chords and it didn’t move me on to the next quest. I am in the process of finding them all again.

  23. I can’t get the microphone to unlock… it says the notes I need are electric guitar ones and the microphone is that prize but nothing for a week. I used the microphone at a friends house for vocal ones..ugh
